Is Botox for Me?

How many of us have looked in the mirror recently and wondered where all those lines came from?  Is it aging? Too much sun? Too much stress?  Regardless of how they got there, now there is a way to get rid of them!  Botox treatment can temprarily reduce moderate to severe wrinkles.  Improvement can be seen within several days and may last up to 4 months, although results may vary.

Botox is a simple, 10 minute, non-surgical procedure.  With just a few tiny injections directly into the muscle that causes the frown lines and there can be noticeable improvement in a few days.

An evaluation with Dr. Croley prior to Botox is required to determine the patient’s condition, needs and expectations as well as where to administer the injection.  Location, size and use of the muscles that create the wrinkle vary from person to person.

The results of Botox generally last for 3 – 6 months.  With repeated treatment before wrinkles & frown lines reappear your results may last even longer.  If you discontinue treatment, wrinkles will gradually look like they did prior to treatment.

Since Botox is a medication, you will want only an experienced medical professional to administer your treatment.  At Central Florida Eye Institute Dr. Croley will evaluate each patient himself prior to perfoming the Botox treatment.  Call for your appointment today.
